    I'm not joking when I ask, because I've never owned an Apple. Can you turn the autocorrect off like you can on an android? I've been led to believe you can't.

    You don't need autocorrect to screw up like that - the brain can do it. I remember my late uncle telling me a story about his mother, many years ago. His mother, who was quite old by then, was talking about a TV host was quite smarmy - you must all know what I mean. Anyway, the word she was trying to find (we think) was "fawner" - a person who gives a servile display of exaggerated flattery or affection.

    Unfortunately, the word that her brain told her mouth to say was "fornicator". Which is quite a bit different.......:D

    My uncle was struggling with this - should he tell his old Mum the real meaning of the word she was using (and horrify the poor old girl), or should he just leave her to it with the risk that she would use this word when talking to other people in her village.

    I don't think he ever told her!
